Father Goriot


Published June 1, 2013


LibriVox recording of Father Goriot, by Honoré de Balzac.
Read by James E. Carson.

One of Balzac's most popular works, set around 1815 during the re-ascendancy of the Bourbon kings following the defeat of Napoleon. Said to have been an inspiration to Charles Dickens and Henry James as well as others, the novel seeks to portray the realism of scenes and people. It is also a commentary upon the changing social strata and mores of the day. (Summary by JCarson)
